Endless Cables Chunky Knit Throw Pattern

Hey friends! Being that it’s blanket season, I wanted to share this simple cable knit throw that I made a couple of years ago.  It was so much fun for me to work the cables and the blanket knit up surprisingly fast.  It’s easy as it’s mostly made up of garter stitch, simple stripes of stockinette and two super simple cables.  Anyone who wants to venture out into the world of cables from doing basic knit stitches should be able to enjoy this pattern.  You can also find a step by step photo tutorial on how to knit this exact cable stitch pattern on the blog (here).

Below: My baby all cuddled up in cables!

The Lion Brand Color Clouds yarn that I used is super soft and super chunky.  They don’t carry this particular color any longer, but they’ve got some other vibrant options on their site.  However, I think you can also sub with Wool Ease Thick & Quick (here), but you’d need to hold two strands together to equal about one strand of Color Clouds. (That’s my best guess anyway!)

When I take the time to knit or crochet something, I hope that it can be appreciated for a long time. Cables are classic and timeless, so my favorite thing about this cable knit blanket is that it isn’t going out of style anytime soon. It’s also nice because it’s a fairly big project but not overwhelming because of the big needles and big yarn. Yay!

It had to be named “Endless Cables” because the blanket is all about the two forever long cables that look like they are going to twist themselves right off the end of the afghan.  🙂  Cables you say……easy??  YES! These are super duper easy cables, and you can see my picture tutorial below on how to make them.   The “lapghan” only uses knit and purl stitches, so it is very doable if you’ve got the knit and purl thing down.

Cable Knit Afghan Blanket Pattern Easy Knitting

How do you like to knit? My fave is to knit in my comfy clothes at home either on the couch or in a good chair. 🙂


This “Endless Cables” blanket was done in a months’ time, working a few hours here and there.  And that’s saying something because I have attention issues when working with blankets – lol! Who else needs a small project to work on in between this big ones?  This blanket was a pleasure to knit because it was cool to see how the cables looked as they got longer and longer. 🙂

Cable Knit Afghan Pattern Easy Free

This “afghan” is more like something I’ve heard referred to as a “lapghan”. It’s smaller than your typical afghan. It would be great for someone who just needs a light and manageable throw blanket.

You will see there are a lot of repeat rows and you make the same simple cable row every 9 rows.  It’s also easy to see mistakes with the big yarn and needles. So let’s get started!



Measurements: Final Blanket “Lapghan” measures 34″ wide x 50″ long

Gauge: Approximately 1.5 stitches and 2 rows per 1 inch

This pattern has two single 8 stitch cables

This pattern uses Knit, Purl and 4/4 LC


4/4 LC: 8 stitch left cable. Slip 4 stitches to cable needle and hold in front, k4, k4 from cable needle.  (You will see in my picture tutorial below that I didn’t use a cable needle, but rather a mechanical pencil to hold my stitches)

You will need:

US Size 35 (19 mm) 29″ Circular Needles (I got mine from Lion Brand Yarns here)

9 Skeins Lion Brand Color Clouds Yarn in Travelers Tan


Tapestry Needle to weave in ends

How to make the cable row in pictures:


Here you’ve just come to the point in the pattern where it says “LC”. We are going to make our cable now!

Tutorial Cables 2

With your cable needle, or in my case, with a pencil, slide off the first four stitches. See my pencil taking off four stitches? That’s what I’m talking about girl!

Tutorial Cables 3

Now pull that cable needle, or “pencil” with the four stitches down in front of your knitting. Just let it hang out there. Proceed to knit the next four on your knitting needle.

Tutorial Cables 4

Then I place the four stitches BACK on the knitting needle. From here, you will knit those four stitches. Some people knit them right off the cable needle. I prefer to place them back on the needle and knit as normal.

Tutorial Cables 5

Knitting the four stitches that I put back on the needle. Finishing the cable!


I hope you enjoy your cuddly, giant “Endless Cables” knit blanket as much as I do!

What is it about chunky knit blankets that spark so much joy? These Scandinavian-inspired layers function as tangible art pieces by virtue of their overly plush, textured design and unbelievably cozy feel. They look luxe in any season, but they are especially nice to curl up with during the colder months. Unlike a heated blanket, these have airy, open-weave patterns that allow you to snuggle without feeling too stifled.

Available in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and patterns, these chunky knit blankets are sure to make your favorite lounging spot at home even dreamier.

Pro tip: Most of these throw blankets shouldn't be thrown in the wash to clean — drop them off at the dry cleaner instead.
